Famed musical songwriter Andrew Lloyd -Webber penned this song with Leslie Bricusse, who won the Best Original Song Academy Award for Talk To The Animals
in 1967. Although the two songwriters are friends, they had never collaborated until they were challenged by their actor pal Sir Michael Caine one day over lunch. "I said to Leslie: 'You give me a great title and I will write a song,' recalled Lloyd Webber to The Daily Mail
. "Michael then bet us that we wouldn't come up with anything.
"Leslie immediately came up with the title, 'The Perfect Song.'" he continued, "and I wrote the melody on the way home in the taxi, emailed it to Leslie and he wrote the lyrics in a day."
